Why more attacks on Britain are likely
Dr Bilal Abdullah, one of the tossers who tried to drive a car bomb into Glasgow Airport last Saturday has emerged as "a religious zealot and a lone wolf whose anger about political developments in Iraq may have driven him to an act of terrorism".
OK, so there is nothing we can do at the moment about religious nuttery, but in the short term there is rather a lot we can do to stop said religious nutters going over the top. What can we do? Well, we can demand an end to the war against Iraq, that's what.
This is not going to happen because the new Gordon Brown regime is just as much a craven poodle of the USA as the Blair government was. Hardly a shock, but it needed to be said.
So, while British troops huddle around Basra airport waiting for the final order to leave, an order that everyone knows will come eventually, people in the UK can get ready for more attacks. The government values its relationship with the USA more than it values the lives of British people.
